1. Puerto de Mogan
In the fishing village Puerto de Mogan, hop on board a catamaran for whale- and dolphin-watching a few miles offshore. A two-hour trip is recommended to have the best chance to see these magnificent creatures jumping through the waves.
2. Maspalomas Beach
If you fancy camel and horseback riding, visit the dunes on the sandy paths of Maspalomas. You may hire a Jeep or quad bike for something a bit different. You can also enjoy simply lounging on the beach or taking a romantic walk towards the 60m-tall lighthouse at sunset.
3. Playa Del Aguila
This a more quiet, relaxed beach near to Playa del Ingles. The breezy conditions here make it a popular spot for windsurfing. The picturesque setting features swaying palm trees and a historic lighthouse.
4. El Cabrón Marine Reserve
Experience the biodiversity of Gran Canaria at El Cabrón Marine Reserve. Try scuba diving to see turtles and manta rays. Enjoy spotting different species of crustaceans and colourful fish.
5. Roque Nublo
This is a volcanic rock and a popular landmark in the municipality of Tejeda. It stands 80m tall and is protected by UNESCO. It was formed through a volcanic eruption that happened about 4.5 million years ago. Take a short hike to enjoy a panoramic 360-degree view of the quasi-lunar landscape.
